Oklahoma State vs Wisconsin Prediction
The current betting odds have Oklahoma State listed as a 3.5 point underdog in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Both of these teams are coming off mediocre seasons but both teams will also be dealing with a similar issue in this game. The starting QB for both Oklahoma State and Wisconsin have both entered the transfer portal and will not be playing in this game. Both of these teams have been struggling on offense all year already so this will not help either team now and both are going to struggle to score points in this game. Wisconsin does have a really good defense which will make it very hard on OK State to score points here, but Wisconsin has barely been putting up 20 points per game on offense themselves so this will likely be a very low scoring game with some good defense. Either team could really win this game with the state of both offenses right now so the best way to go here is to take the points with the dog in what should be a close game for either team that wins. The best way to place a bet here is on Oklahoma State to cover the spread in this game.

“I’m not frustrated. The only time that I would get frustrated is if our guys weren’t competing and playing hard. And I have not seen that this year, and I’m fairly certain I did not see that today.” - Mike Gundy after his team’s loss against WVU in their last game of the regular season.
“We’ve been through a lot of adversity and we’ve learned a lot about this team. There are certain things I don’t like. We need to improve. We need to win games, flat-out. That’s our job. That’s our goal here, to be competitive in the Big Ten and win football games. We’ve gotten inconsistent results.” - Jim Leonhard after his team’s loss against Minnesota in their last game of the regular season.
